Irish Gig of the Week: Injury Reserve

Words: Eva O’Beirne

Jack Daniel’s and District share an authentic love for music culture and we thought who better to team up with to celebrate the best new gigs. Every week, we’re handpicking the must-attend show in the capital, ranging from underground rappers in dimly lit rooms to rising stars on sold-out tours.

Following the release of their new album By the Time I Get to Phoenix, Injury Reserve will be headlining The Academy Green Room this November.

Injury Reserve was originally a trio, consisting of rappers Ritchie With a T and Stepa J. Groggs and producer Parker Corey. Their mixtapes Live From The Dentist and Floss earned them underground buzz, and they capitalized on the attention with their debut album Injury Reserve.

The group’s momentum was put on hold when in June 2020, Groggs tragically passed away. By the Time I Get to Phoenix was largely completed before Groggs’ passing with his contributions, and is the first Injury Reserve music to be released since their debut album.

The group pulls from several styles and eras of hip hop, but runs each one through the Injury Reserve lens, putting their own distinct and cohesive sound across their references.

Injury Reserve will be headlining The Academy Green Room on 7 November. Tickets start at 17.35 euro.
